what's in a name?
I'm interested in some feedback on generic names of different fish around the world.
e.g. I lived in India for a couple of years and it was interesting how many species there were common to Aussie waters....even on the east coast.
Mangrove Jacks and fingermark(golden snapper) were called red snapper
Barramundi were called Sea Bass(bit strange really)
Mulloway/Jewies were called bhekti
All the estuary cod species were called grouper
Spanish Macks and Wahoo were seer fish
anyone know of any bizarre ones?
